Can Committees Go Into Executive Session?

Recommended Posts

Guest Lori Ropa

I serve on a committee of another nonprofit organization (not the one that employs me) and this group wishes to develop a confidentiality policy that allows committee members to disclose the decisions made in our meetings, but does not allow members to discuss the meeting content/discussion.   We thought we might apply the idea of Executive Sessions to our meetings, but don't know if the term is applicable to committee meetings, especially if they are typically closed meetings anyway.


What the group is trying to avoid is members sharing: 1) key business information outside of the group that would allow competitors inside information, and 2) specifics about who said what, who agreed or disagreed, what those disagreements were about, etc.


What would you recommend?
